You won’t be seeing the last of our beloved Sponge on October 17, because Nickelodeon has renewed the series for two more seasons.
Over the past few weeks there were some memes posted to Twitter accounts with large followings stating that SpongeBob is getting cancelled on October 17, 2016. It caught the attention of many and actually had some of the internet fooled for a second. I myself even pondered on how this series could possibly end.. NOW? SpongeBob Squarepants is Nickelodeon’s biggest and longest running animated series with a franchise that is worth billions of dollars, movies that have made over hundreds of millions of dollars and tons of merchandise everywhere. SpongeBob, Patrick & the gang aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Not to mention a third SpongeBob movie is already confirmed to be released in 2019. (x)
So how did Nickelodeon go about this monster of a rumor? Well they simply tweeted that they’re indeed “working on new episodes right now” and surprised the fans with a link to an announcement that the show was renewed through season 11. Two more seasons! You can breathe now, it’s not over yet. Of course it didn’t stop the memes from continuing to circulate, but I guess when Monday rolls around and SpongeBob is not cancelled this rumor can finally be put to rest.
